The Loft: Wordplay

Friday, May 07

Wordplay 2021 is all virtual due to public health concerns.

What does that mean? We will host a series of livestreams throughout the week. This will include a regularly scheduled morning program focused on children’s and young adult books, an afternoon program focused around international books, and an evening conversation focused around timely themes and topics.

There is no charge to attend any Wordplay event, but we will be offering an enhanced ticket that will include virtual, facilitated discussion hours before or after events—some of which will include visits from the authors!
